October, the most wonderful time of the year, is here! There is a bunch of exciting stuff coming to Netflix in October including a ton of potential Halloween viewing. We focus on the horror offerings specifically in this post but here is the complete list of new movies and TV shows hitting the streaming service this month as well as everything that’s leaving.

What’s new for comic book fans? The GOOD Blade movies, Gotham Season 4 and V for Vendetta will be available October 1st. Marvel’s Daredevil Season 3 will be available October 19th.  We’re particularly interested in seeing where they take the Devil of Hell’s Kitchen. We suspect the show will pull from Daredevil: Born Again which we discussed back on the Grawlix Podcast #63.

We are also very interested to see what they do with the new live-action Chilling Adventures of Sabrina series. Based on Archie Comics’ darker horror comic in the same vein as the excellent Afterlife with Archie.

For movie lovers there are several classic, highly watchable movies also hitting Netflix in October. A classic that would never get produced today is Blazing Saddles, the Mel Brooks comedy send up of westerns. There are a few classics that you 80s kids will want to revisit. Pee-wee’s Big Adventure, Tim Burton’s feature length directorial debut which may or may not have terrified a certain young Grawlix host. Then there is The Neverending Story, which traumatized pretty much everyone who watched it as a kid. Artax!!! No!!!  We’ve also got a soft spot for the 90’s teen comedy Empire Records.

And finally, I know I said we’d reserve the horror recommendations for another post but The Shining has to get a mention. The Stanley Kubrick directed Stephen King horror masterpiece is a great addition to Netflix for October. Not just one of my go-to Halloween movie recommendations but also, as discussed in our Top 10 Horror Movies segment of Grawlix Podcast #21, my number 1 favorite horror movie of all time.
